Registration to CykelVasan 2013 opened last Wednesday morning at 9.00. After only 26 minutes and 46 seconds all the 12,000 start places were booked for CykelVasan 90, which is run from Sälen to Mora. For the shorter races there are still places available.
The fifth CykelVasan is on Friday 16th and Saturday 17th August 2013. The shorter races are run on Friday, with start in Oxberg; the long race is on Saturday with start in Sälen, where 12,000 MTB cyclists will be able to start.
Last year the 9,000 places for CykelVasan 90 were all taken in 48 hours. This year, clearly, the entry registration pressure was even greater!
“We are, of course, happily overwhelmed by the enormous interest and look forward to arranging yet another fantastic CykelVasan next year”, says Vasaloppet’s CEO, Anders Selling.
There are a total of 17,000 start places available:
Friday 16 Aug: CykelVasan 30 including UngdomsCykelVasan, 30 km. (2,000 places)
Friday 16 Aug: CykelVasan 45, 45 km. (3,000 places)
